New work, Chai 9. The Jewish symbol for life. Live it!
I’ve always been fascinated with my Native American heritage even though I was not brought up in the traditions of my ancestors. One of the most magical symbols for me has been the dreamcatcher. The idea that it will snare all of the bad dreams and leave me only with the good ones…

As an artist I often create “pretty” things that people love and buy to decorate their homes. There is nothing wrong with decorative work and I enjoy making it. However, in this new series called “The Looking Glass” I am getting in touch with a more visceral side of my being. I am allowing images to form without thought of decor matching or mass appeal. I am just “being” and what forms forms. This painting titled “The Samurai” is very powerful to me. It evokes strong emotions of strength but also of protection and safety. I’d like this to hang in my entry way to my home. The colors and image are strong, but the essence is soft and comforting. What does he make you feel?
